Pakistan Air force Markings

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a couple of kits that in my mind should be finished in PAF 2 Grays camouflage, the Trumpeter F-7M and the FT-6, both in 1/32.

 

I searched on line but seems that aftermarket decals are not available, I am wrong or really nothing has been produced for that planes.

 

I remember someone was speaking about some "pre cut masks" for those marking, but I was non able to find anything... any help?

 

Thanks for looking.

 

Regards.

Marco

Hi,

 

Indeed there were some decals from Tiger Wings and PWMP:

http://www.skywriters.net/pwmp.htm and http://www.largescaleplanes.com/lane/PWMP.php

 

I'd try contacting jean-Pierre Van Regenmortel. He used to have the address given in the second/third links but I'm not sure it is still the right one. You may also try to contact him through LSP messaging as his member nickname is JP-PWMP.

 

Hope this helps.

Ian at AdAstra http://www.adastramasks.com/ produced a custom set of F-6 masks for me.

I had Ian make custom masks for me as well, covering PAF F-7P/PGs, Mirages, F-16, T-33 and Sabres.

Unfortunately, haven't been able to get a hold of him in a while.

Mind sharing what scheme you went for in regards to the F-6?

Please correct me...but I thought that PAF F-6s and F-7s used MB Mk.10 seats?

 

 

That is very possible.

In the Chuck Yeager's biography, he said that he spent some time in Pakistan to train Pakistani pilotes during the Pakistan/India war, and they were adapting new launch-rails for sidewinders on the F-6s. So it may be the same for the MB ejection seats.

Seat should be the Martin Baker PKD10 - which I believe has the larger head box as fitted to early Hawks - as per Kagemusha's post above...

All Pakistani fighters from China use Martin Baker seats, they do not trust the quality of Chinese built bang seats...certainly according the the Air Force Officer I spoke to in Karachi last year.

Could someone here explain the difference between the gun muzzles?

How/what era did they change or what would explain the 2 different types?

The bigger muzzle

Also does the seat above appear to be MB Mk 10 or KM?

 

The other option - perhaps a flash hider?

Seems that AdAstra is no longer in business, I sent them a message but no reply after a week, their updates of the site are very old...

Probably that means no masks for my F-7PG.... :hmmm:
